A leaked training video for new Aldi employees reveals the answers to most burning questions from customers (file image)
The store stores its newer specials at the back of the store and rotates older stock so that it is at the front of the store
1. The best special purchases are at the back
The Aldi specials, announced every Wednesday and Saturday, are known for their popularity and their varied assortment.
They are located in the middle of the store.
But there is a trick to know which specials are the newest and which are a little older.
& # 39; New specials are displayed on the back. Our older specials are condensed and moved to the front of the store while the product is being sold, & said the narrator of the video.
If you want to know which items are most popular with Aldi customers, look for products stored on D-pallets closer to the ground
2. High turnover lines are closer to the floor
Part of the appeal of shopping at Aldi is that there is a constant range of deals – but how to decide which products are the best?
To make choosing easier, look for items that are stored on plastic pallets that are closest to the ground.
& # 39; Here in aisle two, we sell most of our products on what we call D-pallets. We are showing lines here with high sales, & the narrator said.
3. All Aldi store layouts are the same
To guarantee a seamless shopping experience, all Aldi stores – regardless of size – are organized in the same way.
For example, aisle one will always be filled with what the store & # 39; ambient products & # 39; calls. These foods include grains, cookies, and chips.
& # 39; They are part of our core range, which means they are a permanent item & # 39 ;, said the narrator.
With this knowledge, customers can streamline their weekly store and proceed immediately to where they need to go.
Aldi prefers to keep his bookshelves full of cardboard boxes instead of stacking each item because the store is always & # 39; efficient & # 39; is
4. Canned and dry food is never stacked separately on shelves
Customers in the supermarket chain may have noticed dry food and food delivered in tins is never stacked directly on shelves and instead stored in cardboard boxes.
There is no mysterious reason behind it, the video reveals, because it's just a way to guarantee greater efficiency.
& # 39; It is much more efficient for us to do it this way than to stack cans individually. Aldi is always about being efficient. & # 39;
Fresh products arrive daily in the stores' warehouses and bananas are the bestsellers
5. Fresh products are delivered daily and bananas are the bestsellers
Aldi buyers will be happy to know that the store is proud that its products are as fresh as possible.
& # 39; In most stores you will find the fresh produce area next to the chiller, & # 39; said the narrator.
& # 39; These products are delivered daily to our store, with bananas being our biggest seller. & # 39;
6. Chilled food is turned daily
All refrigerated products are stored in the last aisle of the store.
There are two chiller sections, one for foods with a short life, such as meat and chicken, and one for products with a longer life, such as cheeses and butter.
& # 39; The long-life chiller is also a date sensitive area, so constant checking is required. & # 39;
7. Bread is also regularly checked for expiry dates
Bread can always be found in the last aisle of the store and because it is a fresh product, it must be checked to ensure that it is not past the best-before date.
& # 39; As with fresh produce, it is also very important to maintain presentation levels and check the expiration date. & # 39;
8. Why checkout & # 39; s are so important & # 39; n important aspect of Aldi
Although self-service cash registers are incredibly useful for the flight customer, Aldi prefers to serve her customers directly.
This is because the store wants to make sure that it leaves the best impression.
& # 39; Tills are such an important aspect of our daily operation. Here we leave our last impression with our customers. & # 39;
